Her name is Kumutha Raman, a 29 year-old law graduate.
(She is seen with Johor Pas commissioner Mahfodz Mohamed.)
This is an unprecedented move in the history of Pas (Parti Islam Se-Malaysia) to field a non-Muslim candidate.
Kumutha will be contesting the Tiram state seat under the Parti Keadilan Rakyat symbol. This is made possible under an electoral pact between the two parties.
She is a member of the one-month old Unity Bureau under the Johor non-Muslim Pas Supporters Club.
Pas is contesting 34 state seats and nine parliamentary seats in Johor.
No second-guessing her chances in this Umno stronghold. In the 2004 general election, Umno's Maulizan Bujang defeated Pas' Roslani Sharif in a straight fight, by a margin of 15,595 votes.
No prizes for the right guess -- but the BN will win again.
In fielding Kumutha, Pas has nothing to lose. It will not win, that's for sure, but it hopes to win the Indian votes, which make up 14.39 per cent in the constituency.
But will the Indians trust an Indian who represents an Islamic party?
Tebrau MIC thinks it is political suicide for her.
Division chief M. Soorianarayanan warned that the Indian community is going to hate her for aligning with the opposition.
